One of our most popular birthday cakes is our Doughnut Cookie Monster cake. Since its inception back in 2015, we have made thousands of them, delivered all across London. We've made them as birthday cakes, baby shower cakes, and even large tiered wedding cake versions.
I could never have predicted its popularity. Cake. Doughnuts. Cookies. Chocolate. Of course, it's popular! It's been in a fair few celebrities' parties. It's inspired MANY versions by other bakers around the world. And artists have made paintings and even miniature sculptures of it!
Did we inadvertently "invent" the doughnut topped cake? Not sure. I'd like to claim that crown but as it's such an easy peasy way to dress up a cake it's hard to believe no one else had before us. And really, anyone at home can re-create a stunning Doughnut Cookie Cake and stun their guests.
You can make it legit like professional bakers by making your own sponges, buttercream, chocolate drip, tempered chocolate shards, and doughnuts...and it would take you 4 hours. OR you could follow my decorating hacks and create a gorgeous doughnut cake that could fool anyone into thinking it was made by a pro...in under 90mins.
Call it the Doughnut Cookie Cake dupe. Call it the fake-it-till-you-make-it version. It doesn't matter, because I think everyone would agree this cake looks Drop.Dead.Doughnut.Gorgeous, and would not believe it was done in just under 1.5 hours.
